Scrappy Happy Blankie!

These are a few of the 2in. mitered squares I've done for my Scrappy Happy Blankie....after you knit enough for your base row you start connecting them.. These are made out of scrap sock yarn....although I don't have that big of stash to have enough scrap yarn so......

my friend, Manda, sent me a bunch of her sock yarn scraps! This was sooooo sweet of her...she's doing this blankie too! This girl has knit sooo many fabulous socks, she's knitpsycho on ravelry and has wonderful projects! Its so much fun using her scraps because I've never used a lot of the dyers she has..its fabulous!

These are mini skeins from Threadbear called Penny Candy...they even sent me extras! Super fabulous customer service, so friendly! They don't have an online store so you have to call them.


These mini skeins are from a swapless swap on the Blankie Mania group on Ravelry...Kangaroo Dyer...fabulous colorways!
This blankie is a wonderful way to use up scraps...if you don't want your scraps you can always send them my way!:) These little squares are so addicting..like chips you can't make just one!

This is on my radar... I say that a lot, so we'll have to wait and see what actually gets made!

I popped on over here from a link Chan posted a bit back. I love those mini skeins. I've looked at a scrappy sock yarn blanket, but I know that I haven't knit enough socks to consider something like that.

You are lots of nice colors to work with. Yep, it's so addictive!

Dang!! You probably won't need any from me now! LOL! I can't believe all the sock extra goodies! It's probably a good thing since mine is buried in the closet and that's one place I've been too tired to tackle for a long time. My yarn needs some serious reshuffling and organizing. I've just been throwing stuff in and running away. :P Which explains why my blanket is never materializing! LOL!
